    I built a mic booth some time ago, and just finished adding Auralex SheetBlok, I wanted to be able to make everything really clean, and neat, and I dont want a damn mic stand in the booth, so what do ya'll think about this....

    I'll take a low profile stand, drill a hole in the top of the booth, slide the stand down into the hole, that way the stand adapter is pointing twords the floor, add the shockmount, and viola, the mic is "hanging" infront of my face.

    What ya'll think?

    it will work, but thing about how much harder the adjustments will be when you get someone short in there or someone tall...etc?

    plus a big hole in your booth will need to be re-foamed up or someway of re-insulating it...it isnt worth it really

    The booth is 7 1/2" tall, the mic stand is 16" tall.
    It's not a big hole, it's just wide enough so the mic stand head and shaft can be pushed down into the booth, and I sealed it with acoustic caulk, and made sure the foam around it is almost exactly up against the shaft of the mic stand.

    I'm 6'2", and the mic hangs by my mouth when Im in there, so Im sure it would accomidate people of most heights.
